Addicted to a Farming Game?!,

This review is from: Agricola Board Game (Toy)
If you enjoy destroying things, breaking the law and generally creating mayhem ... you can stop reading now...
But if you prefer games that involve strategy and cunning, and which present a different challenge every time you play them then Agricola will be a superb addition to your collection. It is a simple premise - create a successful farm and feed your family at each harvest time, racking up points for your buildings and family, fields, crops and livestock. But every time you play you will be dealt a fresh set of possible advantages to choose from. Which combination will work best? How many can you afford to use? Is there enough time to fulfill all your plans? (never, actually). And what cards are your opponents holding?
A game about farming?
It's amazingly addictive!
One day we might get our other games out again ...
